A sense of calm washes over you the moment you set eyes on this piece of quintessential kiwi paradise. As you arrive at the bottom of the driveway you’re immediately transported to another world. Here you’ll find a hidden retreat that’s far removed from the noise of the city and surrounded by beautiful mature Nikau, Kauri, and the soothing sound of native bird song.
The residence is bold in design and embraces a distinctive Japanese influence with every aspect of this extraordinary home enjoying the unrivalled beauty of New Zealand’s native flora. A well-proportioned open plan living and kitchen area along with 2 bedrooms and main bathroom are located upstairs, and the generous studio space downstairs steps out to the large flat lawn which extends down to the lakes edge. This is a magical area in which to entertain or relax as you watch the ever changing silhouettes whilst the evening sun sets behind the trees.
Originally part of “Dreamlands Estate” purchased by the Leman family circa 1922, this tranquil 5 acres (approx.) was subdivided off the larger estate circa 1940. The sculpted landscape with the lake at its heart was created during the 1930’s and has served as a source of entertainment and reflection for many a generation of visitor.
This is a very special spot, steeped in history and its current guardian will be very sad to say goodbye. But the time is right to pass the mantle on to its new caretakers to enjoy and protect.
